Planned Parenthood Audit Rejected

By Douglas V. Gibbs — Bio and Archives REPOSTED FROM CANADAFREEPRESS.COM

California State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, requested an audit of Planned Parenthood. Her request was a response to videos by a pro-life organization using undercover style reporting revealing Planned Parenthood officials discussing selling the body parts of aborted babies on the black market. She intended that the audit of California’s Planned Parenthood locations would ensure the organization is not illegally profiting from the donation of aborted baby tissue. Her request was rejected by a State legislative committee on Tuesday, August 25.

Planned Parenthood contends the videos that exposed their alleged dealings in the body-tissue black market were deceptively edited and that the organization only seeks to cover the cost of shipping fetal tissue, which is used in medical research.

U.S. Congressional Republicans, responding to the outrage among pro-life supporters in the wake of the release of these videos, have been working to defund Planned Parenthood. Their efforts would begin the process of defunding Planned Parenthood by first removing any federal funding or federal influence with the “Family Planning” organization.

So far, five states have investigated Planned Parenthood’s handling of fetal tissue and their investigations found that no laws were broken.

Melendez is pro-life and said she’s not asking to defund Planned Parenthood, but to investigate. She said that if a law enforcement agency that confiscates guns was seen on video discussing selling those weapons they had confiscated, there would be no question about the need for an audit. “I am not asking we harm Planned Parenthood. That is not my intent. But what I don’t understand is why someone would oppose looking into the allegations that have been made and assuring the public that that is not going on…[if]nothing is being done illegal, wouldn’t it be great if you could put that to bed?”

Opponents to Melendez’s request were skeptical that any evidence existed of Planned Parenthood’s wrongdoing. Democrat State Senator Richard Roth of Riverside said, “In the absence of evidence, I’m wondering how we justify the audit and the request.”

State Senator Connie Leyva (D-Chino) said while she doesn’t think Melendez was on a witch hunt, it’s important to conduct an audit based on facts. “Women need these services,” Leyva said. “And if we continue to go after Planned Parenthood or any entity that is helping women and we don’t have our ducks in a row … then I think we are doing them and the women they serve a disservice.”

Sanger’s Birth Control Policy included the “racial hygiene theory.”

Assemblyman Brian Jones, a Republican who represents the 71st Assembly District which includes inland San Diego County and a small portion of south Riverside County said enough evidence existed to support an audit.

In the end, the audit failed along party lines, with the only support coming from Republicans, who are drastically outnumbered in California’s State Legislature in Sacramento.

The Declaration of Independence lists three of our rights in its text to emphasize the importance of our “God-given” rights (which would also make them God-defined rights), and the first of those three is “life” (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness). Abortion, and medical procedures, are not listed in the Constitution as an authority of the federal government, so any and all funding and influence by the federal government is unconstitutional in the first place. Additionally, as “persons,” the unborn are entitled to be treated equally under the law.

As for Planned Parenthood, as indicated in the book Silenced Screams: Abortion in a Virtuous Society, In 1939, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and a proponent for abortion and forced sterilization in the United States for the purpose of exterminating “undesirable” people, Margaret Sanger, proposed that abortion and forced sterilization must be used to support the agenda of those that defended eugenics. The 1939 Negro Project was designed to convince the black population to participate in the program, and for the black population to accept abortion as an important tool for their well-being as a segment of society.

Sanger’s Birth Control Policy included the “racial hygiene theory.” Racial hygiene theory, according to Sanger, would “cleanse” humanity of the “morons,” “human weeds,” and the “feeble-minded” that negatively affected our populations. In 1922, in Sanger’s book, The Pivot of Civilization, she wrote, “Birth Control, which has been criticized as negative and destructive, is really the greatest and most truly eugenic method, and its adoption as part of the program of Eugenics would immediately give a concrete and realistic power to that science… as the most constructive and necessary of the means to racial health.” (Page 189)

Sanger believed “The emergency problem of segregation and sterilization must be faced immediately…”

Sanger also wrote that she believed “The emergency problem of segregation and sterilization must be faced immediately. Every feeble-minded girl or woman of the hereditary type, especially of the moron class, should be segregated during the reproductive period…. we prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble-minded.” (Pages 101-102)

For Sanger, the purpose in promoting birth control was “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” as she wrote in the Birth Control Review, November 1921 (p. 2).

The drive for racial purification included the extermination of what she considered to be lesser races, including blacks. “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Sanger’s writings and influence led to the passage of segregation laws, sterilization laws, and the Immigration Act of 1924 that included a provision excluding from entry any alien who by virtue of race or nationality was ineligible for citizenship.

Despite Sanger’s efforts, the abortion issue from a legal standpoint remained as it had been—illegal unless the medical community recognized, on a case by case basis, that it was absolutely necessary to save the life of the mother.

Though the issue seemed to be resolved in the United States, underground, a culture of death targeting the innocent lives of unborn children, still existed. A number of illegal abortionists performed the procedure in what today those that advocate for legalized abortion call “back alley abortions.” Europe, however, remained intent upon moving towards making abortion more prevalent, establishing methods designed to make the killing of the unborn “safer.” In 1961, vacuum aspiration-style abortion spread throughout Europe, and it didn’t take long before the pro-abortion segment of American Society caught on to the idea.

In 1963, The Society for Human Abortion (SHA) was established in San Francisco. The organization, designed to promote and legalize “elective abortion” without “harassment,” supported the repeal of all anti-abortion laws. The SHA challenged anti-abortion laws by openly providing information on abortion through providing speakers and literature to libraries, medical schools, physicians, family planning agencies, and individuals. The information avalanche also included providing their view of abortion through the publishing of a quarterly newsletter. In 1968 the SHA maintained a free Post-Abortion Care Center (PACC), which was sponsored by the American Humanist Association. SHA disbanded in 1975.

In addition to the SHA, a parallel organization was established to safeguard the SHA’s tax-free educational status, while enabling the group to carry out underground activities. The Association to Repeal Abortion Laws (ARAL) made referrals to abortion specialists, while preparing and disseminating printed material about specialists and about self-induced abortion. The ARAL also held classes on abortion-related laws, provided information on Mexican abortion specialists, and sought to teach pregnant mothers on self-induced abortion techniques. For a small donation, pregnant women received a kit prepared by ARAL containing annotated lists of abortion specialists in Mexico, Japan, Puerto Rico, and other countries, instructions for going through customs, an evaluation form to be returned to ARAL after completion of the abortion, summaries of laws, and directions for self-induced abortion. The evaluations were used to update the list of abortion specialists.

Sanger’s vision of genocide through abortion is not only being carried out, but it has expanded into an evil that cases like Kermit Gosnell

When California was legalizing abortion with Governor Reagan’s signature in 1967, abortion was classified a felony in 49 states and Washington, D.C. In California, Dr. Leon Belous was convicted for referring a woman to an illegal abortionist, which was the case that led to the 1969 California Supreme Court decision that ignited the battle over abortion in that State.

Today, in New York City, more black babies are aborted than born. Sanger’s vision of genocide through abortion is not only being carried out, but it has expanded into an evil that cases like Kermit Gosnell, and the recent videos regarding baby body parts being sold, have exposed. Yet, the media and the Democrat Party are doing all they can to cover up the horror, and I fear that these horrific images and conversations about the selling of aborted baby body parts are only the tip of the iceberg in regards to how horrifying this all truly is.

How the California Democrats could reject Assemblywoman Melendez’s request to at least audit Planned Parenthood is beyond me.

Black Pastors Ask Smithsonian to Remove Bust of Planned Parenthood Founder

BY PENNY STARR FROM CNSNEWS.COM

MARGARET

(CNSNews.com) – A group of black pastors sent a letter to the director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery asking that the bust of Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger be removed from the museum’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, citing her support for eugenics and the targeting of minorities by the nation’s largest abortion provider.

“Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies, an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded;’ speaking at a rally of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers,” the letter from Ministers Taking a Stand states.

“Also the notorious ‘Negro Project,’ which sought to limit, if not eliminate black births, was her brainchild,” the letter states. “Despite these well- documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice.

“The obvious incongruity is staggering!” the letter states.

(CNSNews.com/Penny Starr)

The group says that Sanger should not be part of an exhibit that features the real “champions” of the civil rights movement, including Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks.

“How can a person like Sanger, who found common cause with the racial agenda of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), be ranked among true champions of ‘justice?’” the letter states. “She was a purveyor of grave injustice against the most innocent and vulnerable among us.”

The letter states that it is the first “in a series of actions we will be taking to expose the evil of honoring Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood.”

The letter also notes the current scandal surrounding Planned Parenthood with the release of undercover videos showing top medical officials in the organization discussing harvesting and selling the organs and other body parts from aborted babies.

“The fact is that the behavior of these abortionists, their callous and cavalier attitude toward these babies, is completely in keeping with Sanger’s perverse vision for America,” the letter states.

The letter also states that 70 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are in minority neighborhoods and provides a link to a map documenting this fact.

In the gallery exhibit, the signage states that Sanger was a nurse who was “profoundly affected by the physical and mental toll exacted on women by frequent childbirth, miscarriage and self-induced abortion,” but it also notes her connection to eugenics.

“During her campaign, Sanger became associated with the eugenics movement – which promoted, among other practices, the forced sterilization of those deemed mentally unfit and for a time was endorsed by many of the era’s prominent thinkers,” the signage states.

The description of Sanger on the gallery’s website also notes her eugenics-supporting history.

“Adding to her life of controversy is her association with the eugenics movement – which included promotion of forced sterilization for those deemed mentally unfit – a movement that for a time was endorsed by many of the era’s prominent thinkers,” the online text states.

The letter from Ministers Taking a Stand refers to a letter Sanger sent to Dr. C.J. Gamble of the Eugenics Society in 1939.

“The ministers work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach,” Sanger wrote. “We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

In a paper entitled “Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda” written by Sanger in 1921, she praises eugenics as “the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.”

She then explains the role birth control plays in eugenics.

“The eugenic and civilizational (sic) value of birth control is becoming apparent to the enlightened and the intelligent,” Sanger wrote.

The basis of birth control propaganda, Sanger said, “indicate that the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical in ideal with the final aims of eugenics,” Sanger wrote.

In her book “The Pivot of Civilization,” Sanger wrote extensively about eugenics, including in Chapter 18, “Dangers of Cradle Competition.”

“We should not minimize the great outstanding service of Eugenics for critical and diagnostic investigations,” Sanger wrote. “It demonstrates, not in terms of glittering generalization but in statistical studies of investigations reduced to measurement and number, that uncontrolled fertility is universally correlated with disease, poverty, overcrowding and the transmission of hereditable taints.”

The letter is signed by Bishop E.W. Jackson, MTS founder and president and bishop THE CALLED Church; Pastor Cecil Blye, Jr., MTS President Kentucky and senior pastor, More Grace Ministries; Pastor Iverson Jackson, MTS state President Arkansas and senior pastor, Zoe Bible Church; Apostle Stanley Jacobs, MTS State President Delaware and senior pastor, Greater Works Ministry; Pastor Marlin Sharp, MTS president Tidewater Virginia and senior pastor, Landstown Community Church; Dr. Leon Threatt, MTS president North Carolina and senior pastor, Joy Christian Fellowship; Pastor Garfield Williams, MTS President Maryland and senior pastor, Kingdom Equippers Ministries; Rev. Steven L. Craft, MTS president New York/New Jersey and executive director Christian Citizenship Ministries; Dr. Melvin Johnson, MTS state president Texas and Heart of Christ Community Church; and Pastor Michael Smith, MTS President southwest Virginia and senior pastor Mountain View Union Church.

 

Two Eugenicists

My comments:  So Hillary is in awe of eugenicist, Margaret Sanger.  What does that tell you about Hillary?  And why would any black person vote for this woman?

A disturbing reminder of who our President chose to serve as his co-president — and why.

So the Confederate Flag Should Come Down But Margaret Sanger Belongs on the $20 Bill?

Posted by Matthew Archbold From the NATIONAL CATHOLIC REGISTER

Article main image

The New York Times editorial board called for South Carolina to take down the Confederate flag because it’s racist. They said:

State lawmakers who must vote on removing it need to do that now and show the nation they understand the pain this symbol of hate and brutality causes to this day.

So the reason for all the renewed controversy surrounding the flag is because the man charged with killing nine African-Americans in church was seen waving it in photographs. Ok. So any symbol with a strong relation to racism should not be celebrated by the government. Got it?

But last month the New York Times published an opinion piece that none other than Margaret Sanger should be on the $20 bill.

Margaret Sanger didn’t just introduce the idea of birth control into our culture at large, she freed women from indenture to their bodies. Through her activism, Sanger introduced and eventually normalized the discourse about women’s bodies and fertility so women could decide not only when, but if, they would have children. No longer were women’s bodies subject — politically, personally, or medically — to the whims of men. Sanger’s efforts to promote birth control were originally directed toward working class women who were disproportionately affected by a lack of access to reproductive healthcare. When, in 1921, she founded the American Birth Control League, Sanger expanded her efforts to include middle class women so more women would be empowered to control their fertility. This organizing lead to the creation of Planned Parenthood, which continues to serve women and men, offering preventive healthcare, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, and reproductive counseling.

Sanger was not without her controversies but neither were any of the men who currently grace our currency. Placing Margaret Sanger on the $20 bill will remind us of what she has done for women and our reproductive health and how the fight for reproductive freedom is an ongoing one. We need this reminder now, more than ever.

Not without her controversies? Seriously? Margaret Sanger had more than a passing affiliation with racism. She embraced it. And not just the kind of racism where she locks the doors of her car when she passed through urban neighborhoods. No. The kind of racism that wants to empty all neighborhoods of black people.

In the April 1932 Birth Control Review, she wrote, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” In the book, “Woman, Morality, and Birth Control” in 1922, she wrote, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

In the Birth Control Review, Sanger wrote “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda.” Birth Control Review in 1921, that,

“Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems. “I think you must agree … that the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics … Birth control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the eugenic educator.

“As an advocate of birth control I wish … to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feebleminded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation.

Is this really the person we want on the $20 bill?

So, I think, what the New York Times is really saying here, is that the Confederacy made the mistake of not supporting abortion. If only the 19th century South had supported racism AND ABORTION then the Times would be supportive of flying the Confederate flag everywhere.

 

Radical Pro-Abortion Group Launches Multi-Million Dollar Campaign to Elect Hillary Clinton

BY STEVEN ERTELT FOR LIFENEWS.COM

HITLERY

To garner the endorsement from the pro-abortion group Emily’s List, a Democratic candidate must take the most radical and extreme position on abortion. Candidates must support forcing Americans to pay for abortions with their tax dollars and oppose any limits on abortions, including any limits on late-term abortions.

Not only is Emily’s List endorsing Hillary Clinton, the radical group is putting together a multi-million dollar campaign on her behalf to keep the White House in pro-abortion hands.

From a report:

For a couple years now, EMILY’s List, a group that helps Democratic women who support abortion rights, has been running an effort called Madam President to help propel a woman into the White House.

It never was just about Hillary Clinton, though the group didn’t seem to mind too much when people thought it was. But now, let there be no confusion, EMILY’s List, has set its sights on supporting Clinton.

EMILY’s List is launching an independent expenditure, the largest in it’s 30-year history, focused entirely on her.

“At EMILY’s List, there is nothing we want more than to shatter the highest glass ceiling and see that a woman is finally elected as president of the United States,” Executive director Denise Feriozzi wrote in a memo to donors. “EMILY’s List has been working for 30 years to lay the groundwork for this moment. Our research consistently shows that Americans are ready for a woman president, and most importantly, ready for a fighter for women and families – and we have that in Hillary Clinton.”

SIGN THE PETITION! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

The group expects to raise millions of dollars to persuade and turn out female voters in targeted states through polling, message testing, targeting and voter outreach including television ads and a digital campaign.

Clinton, who recently slammed the House of Representatives for passing a bill to ban late-term abortions, has a long pro-abortion history.

Most recently, Hillary Clinton pushed abortion at a fundraising event in March. One year to the date after she received an award from the radical pro-abortion group Emily’s List, likely presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gave the keynote address last night at a fundraiser for the organization.

Clinton’s speech came at the Emily’s List 30th Anniversary Conference and Gala in Washington, D.C. and she applauded the work of the abortion activists, who strongly support taxpayer funding of abortions and strongly oppose banning late-term abortions.

“When I look at this room, I see leaders,” Clinton said, encouraging the pro-abortion activists gathered to redouble their efforts.

Last year, Clinton said that to be pro-woman is to be pro-abortion. Clinton, at a pro-Braley rally, told voters in Iowa, “It’s not enough to be a woman, you have to be committed to expand rights and opportunities for all women.” Because Joni Ernst (who defeated Braley) thinks unborn babies should be protected, she isn’t committed to expanding rights and opportunities for women?

National Right to Life’s Carol Tobias said in response: “Pro-abortion advocates like to say abortion is a woman’s issue, but only pro-abortion women should voice their opinions. Indeed, they come very close to saying it is illegitimate for a woman who is pro-life to speak on abortion. The voices of pro-life women just don’t count. The hypocrisy, or should I say the gall, of people who think you have to want to kill unborn children in order to be pro-woman is stunning.”

Meanwhile, Clinton launched a new partnership with the Gates Foundation, that supports abortion. The Gates Foundation operated by Bill and Melinda Gates supports abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Clinton says she admires Margaret Sanger, the racist founder of the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

In her role as Secretary of State Clinton pressed for abortion on an international scale. As recently as June 2012, she was upset the document the United Nations adopted at its Rio+20 conference did not promote abortion by inserting terms like “reproductive rights” into he language of the text.

A diverse group of countries rallied together with the Holy See to successfully remove any mention of reproductive rights or population control from the final outcome document produced during the last round of UN negotiations at the Rio +20 conference. The UN Population Fund (UNFPA), along with Norway and Iceland, and Catholics for Choice and the International Planned Parenthood Federation, worked feverishly to take advantage of the Rio +20 conference on sustainable development in order to promote both an international right to abortion and population control.

However, nations like Nicaragua, Chile, Russia, Honduras, Syria, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Egypt all rejected the introductionof “reproductive rights” into the Rio +20 outcome document.

Responding to the resounding defeat, Clinton said she was disappointed, according to a CNS News report.

“While I am very pleased that this year’s outcome document endorses sexual and reproductive health and universal access to family planning, to reach our goals in sustainable development we also have to ensure women’s reproductive rights,” she said. “Women must be empowered to make decisions about whether and when to have children. And the United States will continue – the United States will continue to work to ensure that those rights are respected in international agreements.”

Clinton personally urged Obama to veto a State Department funding bill over cuts to groups that perform and promote abortions.

In 2010, she testified before a Congressional committee where two pro-life members of Congress presented her with a long lecture on abortion and how it hurts women.

Congressmen Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, and Jeff Fortenberry, a Nebraska Republican, both addressed pro-life issues during the hearing.

Smith, who had frequently led the fight against abortion on an international scale, made his full remarks with Clinton sitting as the lone witness at the witness table.

“Secretary Clinton, the most persecuted and at risk minority in the world today are unborn children,” Smith said. “Pregnancy is not a disease. The child in the womb is neither a tumor nor a parasite to be destroyed.”

Smith said he is troubled by President Barack Obama’s decision to overturn the Mexico City Policy and open the door forcing taxpayers to fund abortions in other nations.

“I am deeply concerned that with the elimination of the Mexico City Policy by executive order last year, NGO implementing partners may actively seek to integrate abortion with the many necessary and noble undertakings funded by the Global Health Initiative,” he said.

“I respectfully ask that the administration consider that for many of us, all abortion—legal or illegal—is violence against children and poses significant, often underappreciated risks to women and even to children later born to post-abortive women,” Smith added.

Hillary Clinton’s “Women for Hillary” Event Turnout Was So Bad She Opened It Up to Men

By Steven Ertelt for LIFE NEWS

The turnout for a “Women for Hillary” event for pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was so bad that the Clinton campaign had to open up the event to men.

As one report indicates:

Hillary Clinton had trouble attracting high-powered women to a New York talk hosted by Silda Wall Spitzer two weeks before her campaign officially kicks off. Sources said that after ticket sales fizzled for an intimate, $2,700-per-person, “just for women” meeting on Monday, the event was thrown open to men at the 11th hour, and the deadline extended to buy tickets.

The “Conversation With Hillary Clinton” event at Midtown law firm Akin Gump was originally aiming to attract 125 women. An email invitation seen by Page Six said the event is “just for women.” But by Friday, “They’d only sold 50 tickets, so they threw it open to men,” a source said. “Ticket sales were supposed to close at 10 a.m. Sunday, but the hostesses were working the phones and pushed the deadline till Monday.”

We hear about 90 attendees included former Bill Clinton aide Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and his husband, Randy Florke, Maurice Tempelsman, Jill Braufman (wife of hedge funder Daniel Nir), Jean Shafiroff and Susan Cole. The event began at noon, but Clinton arrived at 1 p.m. in “a royal blue jacket and black pants.” She then took pictures with donors and delivered a half-hour speech before leaving at about 2 p.m.

Silda introduced Clinton as a “tough, authentic leader,” which is probably more than she can say about her hard-charging ex Eliot. In a possible nod to her host, Clinton quoted Eleanor Roosevelt, quipping, “Every woman in public life needs to develop skin as tough as rhinoceros hide.”

Perhaps the turnout was so poor because women are tired of being defined by their reproductive organs and told by Hillary and her pro-abortion friends at Planned Parenthood that they need to vote solely on the basis of the fact that Hillary Clinton will be a staunch abortion advocate. Under the Clinton/Planned Parenthood mantra, aborting babies is the only issue that matters for women — not education, the economy, or foreign policy.

Clinton, who recently slammed the House of Representatives for passing a bill to ban late-term abortions, has a long pro-abortion history.

Most recently, Hillary Clinton pushed abortion at a fundraising event in March. One year to the date after she received an award from the radical pro-abortion group Emily’s List, likely presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gave the keynote address last night at a fundraiser for the organization.
